Harare - Post Report Question and Answers

How do you send and receive your letters and package mail? Are local postal facilities adequate?

Pouch, DHL and FedEx were also available. - May 2021

Diplomatic pouch. Amazon orders usually take fewer than two weeks. I would not consider local post... - Feb 2020

Pouch. God bless the pouch. I believe local mail is somewhat reliable, but takes a long time and customs is problematic with packages. - Feb 2019

We use the Pouch. If we place an order from Amazon for next day shipping, it will arrive to us in about 1 week. Letters to the States take about one week. The pouch is AMAZING, with the only limitation being liquid amounts and batteries. Your items will get rejected if they have a prohibited item. We can use FedEx and DHL. I used FedEx for a sensitive document. It arrived in 3 business days and costs me $44. People often say that mail is expensive, but we are in Southern Africa and your mail has a long journey to the States. - Apr 2018
